You may have heard that one of the latest revelations from Ed Snowden’s whistleblowing efforts concerned the NSA’s spying on Brazilians  with a rather extensive program.
As the headline suggests, the crux of the main article details how the NSA has, for years, systematically tapped into the Brazilian telecommunication network and indiscriminately intercepted, collected and stored the email and telephone records of millions of Brazilians.
Of course, as each new country learns more and more about US spying on their citizens, the outrage against the US seems to grow. The Brazilian government has now kicked off an investigation , but perhaps more interesting is the fact that some Brazilian Senators are using this story to suggest that the country offer asylum to Snowden .
